Microsoft is today rolling out a massive new update for its Edge browser on the iPhone. The new update brings some essential new features to the browser.
The main big thing part of the latest Edge update is support for 3D Touch. Microsoft Edge now takes advantage of the 3D Touch feature on all modern iPhones, allowing users to peek at pages without actually opening them using force/3D touch. This feature works with all types of links within the browser, including for pages on the recent pages section that shows up when you are typing in the address bar. The latest update now allows you to open a link in the background when you long press on a link, though that doesn’t have anything to do with 3D Touch.
The latest update for Edge also comes with other useful features such as Find in Page, ability to open links in Edge from other apps via the native iOS share sheet, option to set the region for the MSN news feed on the New Tab page, and improved startup time. “Blazing fast” start time, according to Microsoft.
